"In 1832, Susanna Moodie, her husband, and her daughter immigrated to Canada from England in search of financial independence. In Roughing It in the Bush, Moodie recounts the seven and a half years the family spent pioneering in the unsettled Canadian backwoods. The text reprinted in this Norton Critical Edition is the second English edition, of July 1852, chosen because it corrects errors in the first edition and adds selected material by Moodie that was not included in the first edition."--Jacket

1 edition published in 1855 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A "Reverend Richard Taylor (1805-1873) was an English missionary, who wrote extensively on Māori culture and the plant and animal life of New Zealand. Taylor graduated from Queens' College, Cambridge in 1828 and was ordained as an Anglican priest the same year. After serving as a curate in the Isle of Ely, Taylor was appointed as a missionary to New Zealand for the Church Missionary Society. He arrived in Australia in 1836 and landed in New Zealand in 1839. Taylor quickly became a peacekeeper between the different Māori tribes in his district. This volume, first published in 1855, provides a detailed account of Māori mythology and culture with a description of the plant life, animal life and geology of the North Island. Taylor strongly condemns contemporary (nineteenth-century) attitudes to Māori culture and demonstrates the complexity of their society in this sympathetic book."--Publisher's information
